From Defendant to Defender – Attorney Attributes Faith in Inspirational Memoir “The American Dream: HisStory in the Making”
Atlanta, GA, August, 4, 2015 |Christian News Service| — David Lee Windecher’s parents moved his family from Argentina to Miami for a better life – for a shot at the American dream, but it wasn’t long before the nefarious activities of America’s toughest neighborhoods seduced this impressionable and confused boy.
David Lee Windecher addresses poverty, crime, redemption and rehabilitation by recounting in breathtaking detail his inspirational transformation from defendant to defense attorney in “The AmerIcan Dream – HisStory in the Making.”
David was first arrested at age eleven. What started as desperate measures to feed his family of six turned into a criminal lifestyle racked with vice and violence. Over the following eight years, Windecher joined a gang, sold dope, built and masterminded a crime ring and was arrested 13 times.
David Lee Windecher beat the self-imposed negative cycle of street life through an unwavering faith in God and sheer commitment to be better. He vanquished self-doubt and conquered his deep fears of fitting in at school to pursue an education. David fought tirelessly to beat the system holding him down. He overcame seemingly insurmountable obstacles to achieve his dream and change his fate.
“My newfound relationship with God would eventually make me the man I am today. It no longer mattered what others thought of me or where I came from. I knew it in my bones that the struggles I endured were engineered by God. I learned to be a part of the world without being broken by it.”
-David Lee Windecher
“‘The AmerIcan Dream’ is a powerful testimonial of the emotional strength and guidance derived from one’s faith in God. David recounts his life story with heart breaking, yet encouraging honesty. Too many children are left to navigate the dangerous streets of America’s poor neighborhoods. This book opens the window and allows every reader a peak into this dark world and likewise gives us a greater understanding of the challenges facing today’s impoverished youth. I believe in my heart it is the duty of every Christian to behold this knowledge and understand that there is hope for everyone. It is through galvanizing stories like David’s we will come to understand this hope and begin to help bring the light of the Lord to those in need.”
-Michael Cox, Lead Pastor of Cornerstone Church, Anniston, AL
“A very powerful and inspirational testimony. It is truly amazing to see how God moved and molded David into the man he is today.”
– Christian D. W. Smith, Esq
